I’ve been working with my interior designer for several weeks now, and she’s been helping to change the layout of the main floor of the Verona house, along with selecting new furniture, paint colors, and flooring. As we iterate through the selection process, she provides space plans like the following:
I can then take material samples and look at them in the house, to make sure we’re on the right track. Paul the cat likes to help with this process as well…
The biggest things to select initially are flooring and paint. She suggested going with a dark-stained hand-scraped hickory hardwood throughout the entire main level of the house, with large area rugs to add color. I think the end result of that will look really striking, and will pair well with the furniture we’re picking.
I did some really rough photoshops of the color in our existing rooms, and I think it will look awesome!
For paint colors, we’re going with light taupe and light grey, which should contrast nicely with the dark wood floors.
I’m really excited to see how it all looks when the process is done! The goal is to have all of the designs, decor, and furniture selections done in the next month or two, and to gradually implement everything by the end of the year.
